TCM impressed UK ambassador Sarah Gillett
The British Ambassador Sarah Gillett visited Technology Centre Mongstad (TCM) last week, and was very impressed by the facilities and the ongoing test activities.
"Having heard so much about Mongstad, it was wonderful to be able to visit the impressive TCM. Carbon Capture and Storage is a hugely challenging but important endeavour on which both Norway and the United Kingdom are actively engaged - researchers, companies, and governments. Understanding the scale of achievement so far, and walking around the Mongstad facility, gave me a valuable insight into the work being done on CCS, " Gillett says.
She visited TCM together with her Energy advisor Mark Burnett from the UK embassy in Oslo last week. They got an extensive presentation and tour of TCM, and could discuss CCS challenges and possible collaboration with TCMs management.
Currently Shell Cansolv is testing its advanced CO2 capture process at TCM. The testing takes place at TCM’s amine test facility, confirming Shell Cansolv’s processes and emission controls using exhaust gas from the Combined Heat and Power (CHP) Plant at Mongstad. The test phase will reinforce the CANSOLV CO2 Capture technology, and validate its readiness for deployment at industrial-scale projects, like the planned CCS plant at Peterhead Gas Fired Power station in the UK.
